vaso vagal reflex and gastric bypass surgery

From: erica


Does anyone have information on this? My husband has experienced a few fainting spells and blacked out once. The dr.'s seem puzzled because they were sure it was low BP, but he had an EKG, tilt table, EEg, glucose test, Holter monitor and they were all negative. He had gastic bypass surgery almost 2 years ago and just recently started having these problems. Any info, please email me at :
